Send SMS From "My giffgaff"

Could you implement a feature to send an SMS via a web form from "My giffgaff" or similar please? Some other mobile carriers offer this.

 

It's just more convenient to send a text with a full keyboard when I'm near a PC. It would be particularly handy if you could stay logged in on a cookie, so you could keep the web form bookmarked without having to type a password. It would also need a phone book feature for frequently used numbers to be useful.

 

Would be even better if it was a fraction cheaper since you don't have to accept the message from the network :-)

 

Thanks

I could have sworn that this had been suggested already... but I can't seem to find the post so maybe I imagined it!  Maybe someone else will find it.

 

I think having an alternate rate may be confusing (plus it's only 4p!), so maybe there could be a cap of 25 free per month or something?

 

Kudos!

I did have a look too but couldn't see another similar suggestion. I found one about e-mail to SMS but it's not quite the same as what I am looking for.

 

Yes I know it's only 4p, but less is always better ;-) Yes a few free ones a month could be a good way of effectively giving a discount for sending from the web. I think O2 did that for a while (or maybe still do).

 

Thanks for the kudos point.

That would be fantastic, its very fiddly writing long messages on an iphone! :smileyhappy:

Im sure there are many options using your PC connected to your phone to send messages.

 

I use wammu on Ubuntu.

 

Just remember, do not use it to automatically send messages, this is against T&C.

If cardboard fish can do this with no problems I see no reason why Giff GAff can't provide a wb based free sms system. It would improve both customer loyalty and boost take up too!
